What about a step up from what you have... what do you have? A stock 150 Photon? I like brutalbrutus idea of tuning within the mold..

If you have a stock 150 plasma you could step up to a 160 fission.. From what I saw about outside rim weighting you might get better control and a harder panning fade.. I know there's a decent difference between my 143 fissions and my 155. Someone cut them apart and weighed the fission..

The flightplates all weighed the same from 143 to 174, the extra weight was in the rim. IME though the dome is what you should look for haha.. Contradictory information..

How rare are sparkles in Proton? I've got a chartreuse core with white rim Proton Thrill and its plate is really sparkly. I threw it twice since I found it in the used bin at PIAS, but it flies like a FAF Firebird for me. I got maybe 250 on it both FH and BH, and I can get a Z Force out to 330' easily FH, with 370'ish being my norm BH.

It's a smaller rim but the Wrath is good for those shots you're describing. Wrath is easier for straight to fade lines than the Photon which likes to s-curve a bit more. I FH Wraths for that shot you described all the time.

-----------------

Picked up a used 1616 stamped Vanish, a N Thrill and a N Excite today.

I doubt they'll replace anything in the bag but it's always fun to try out discs I haven't yet.

Thanks for all the help guys. One follow up question: will a Proton Photon be any more overstable than Neutron or Plasma?

The orange proton one i have for sale ... Has no turn and is pretty beefy. Its too much overlap with my forces.
Mvp/axiom seems to be a crapshoot regardless of plastic choice. Imo

I have the same experience as Emoney. My orange Proton Photon is board flat and is beefy with very little glide. It's closer to my PDX than anything else I have.

My 148g Fission Tour Photon is more OS than the McBeth Destroyers, and it flys in a C shape instead of classic L straight to fade. There are some odd beefy Photons out there, but those are not standard.

I think my Photon must have been one of the freak beefy ones. Unfortunately (or fortunately?) Wraiths fill that slot very nicely so I probably won't revisit the Photon mold. It's in my FSOT stack.
